How can I configure a CAN sensor with my PC?
Last Updated 10 months ago

You can read the CAN sensor with your PC, but you'll need some tools fist:
  • External power supply (8-30V) for the sensor.
  • CANopen to USB adaptor.
    E.g. https://www.peak-system.com/PCAN-USB.199.0.html?&L=1
  • Customised cable M12 Can to D-Sub9 CAN with external power and GND plug. 120Ω terminal resistance is soldered inside the connector. You can order this cable from us or make one by yourself.

  • Software which can reads CANopen devices. E.g. PCAN-View
After everything is set, you can easily configure the object dictionary or reading output with your PC.
